Happy Bloomsday

The Irish will make up any excuse to have a party. From our pals at the ‘pedia:

“Bloomsday is a commemoration observed annually on June 16th in Dublin and elsewhere to celebrate the life of Irish writer James Joyce and relive the events in his novel Ulysses, all of which took place on the same day in Dublin in 1904. Joyce chose the date because his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle happened on that day, when they walked to the Dublin urban village of Ringsend. The name derives from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses.”

Now to find a pub in Greenville that celebrates this very official and completely legitimate holiday…

    You’re Catholic, which is close enough to being Irish. I would claim religious holiday on this one.
